Clinical Data Manager
Adela is focused on the detection of cancer and other high-morbidity, high-mortality conditions through a blood test. The Company’s genome-wide methylation analysis technology has the unique ability to enrich for the most highly informative (methylated) regions of the genome from the non-informative regions and preferentially target those informative regions for sequencing. The technology is initially being developed for use across the cancer continuum for detection, diagnosis, and management and in the future will be applied to other conditions beyond cancer.
Under the direction of the Director, Clinical Data Management, the Clinical Data Manager (CDM) will be responsible for supporting and managing the capture, quality, and analysis of data from multiple prospective, and retrospective clinical research programs. The CDM works collaboratively with internal and external colleagues and vendors to support clinical study objectives by ensuring the accurate and timely acquisition of clinical data via efficient Case Report Form (CRF)design, edit check design, and the query resolution process. The CDM will own data management activities including CRF design, database design, development of Clinical Data Management Plans (CDMP), data entry and query resolution status tracking through database closure.
